handprint leprechauns

We’ve been doing some really fun St. Patrick’s Day crafts and activities around here. I can’t wait to share them all. I have to post a quick one this morning because I’m off to work. These handprint leprechauns are just so cute and they were really so easy to make. The kids think they’re hilarious too. Here’s how we made them:

What you’ll need:

orange paint
peach paint
paint brush
green and black craft foam
yellow button


1. paint your child’s fingers (excluding the thumb) orange and paint their palm peach. Stamp on the paper. Paint just the top of their palm orange for some hair. Allow to dry.
2. cut a hat out of the green craft foam and a stripe for the hat out of the black foam.
3. have your kids glue the hat and stripe on their little leprechaun. Glue a yellow button on the hat.
4. using a sharpie, draw on his adorable little face.
